As the head of the laboratory of optical radiation of the IKBFU named Dmitry Shitz explained, the specialists of the university created a light beam obtained from the so-called. non-thermal plasma that you can touch with your hands. Such plasma has a temperature at the level of the human body or room temperature.
Plasma is obtained from helium. Three tubes generate three streams, at a certain distance they become one stream with a coverage area of 1 sq. cm.
“We have learned to generate a slightly different type of plasma, which is called non-thermal. That is, plasma that we can touch with our hand. Its gas temperature is relatively low, close to room temperature or the temperature of the human body. Thus, with the flow of this plasma we can treat human skin and even open wounds, ”the IKBFU said.
